Windows 7 to 8.1. Installation was successful, but it BSOD's about every 5 minutes. Doing a clean install like I should have known to do. Microsoft should stop offering upgrade options and just tell you ahead of time that you have to do a clean install. I have my shite backed up so it isn't...

Netgear Nighthawk router - Casty McBoozer
I set one of these monsters up today, I was installing internet services and the customer had his own router. On the plus side, right next to the router I was getting 60 Mbps throughput to speedtest.net (60 Mbps is the limitation of that ISP feed, not the router). Not too bad wireless throughput...

Are any of you using Exchange Online - Casty McBoozer
I'm about to do a migration, I was just wondering if Microsoft's spam filtering for their online solution is any good? I know on premises Exchange is terrible for spam filtering and I'm using MX Logic (now Mcafee SaaS). I'm wondering if MX Logic can be eliminated. Thanks....
